So then ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but ye are fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God.
Sometimes our families do not encourage and support us. There are those among us that when we made the decision to follow God we lost our friendship with our family. They don’t understand our goals now that we are a Christian.
God in His wisdom has provided us with a church family. We have a family that understands our goals, that want to help us get to heaven. But in order to avail ourselves of our church family we need to get to know them, see them, fellowship with them. We need to do more than just chat with them on Sunday morning. We need to avail ourselves of the blessing that is our church family that God has given us.
